Sierra Mist Soda: Chemically polluted water for ignorant public

February 27, 2013 |

Money-based, profit-driven economy is dead

No, this crippled economy is NOT going to improve. Not because America is bankrupt and not because the government keeps borrowing $200 million per hour 24/7… This time the reason is not political and not even economical: It is FUNDAMENTAL. The whole concept of money-based profit-driven economy is DEAD. Why now? Well, paradoxically the use of today’s advances in science and technology coupled with ruthless exploitation of public ignorance for the sole goal of maximizing corporate profits, has brought the nation on a brink of physical mass-extermination. In other words, we are witnessing a monstrous phenomenon of unprecedented scale: How this insolvent profit-driven economy devours itself in America and globally. In the past economic downturns and depressions American people could at least rely on their own health to support their hopes for a better future. Not this time. Look at the chemical composition of Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash: It looks like profit-driven absurd to me.

Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash: Risk, Nutrition and Dye Content

As you can see, it is very alike waste water of a chemical plant. How a human being can be so slave-ignorant or so careless to agree to drink this artificially colored solution of chemicals? And yet Sierra Mist enjoys 1,194,263 likes on Facebook. What is WRONG with you, people? Which chemical do you people like the most: citric acid, tartaric acid or malic acid? Oh! I bet you must have been dreaming all your life of eating POTASSIUM BENZOATE which “preserves freshness,” right? Then tell me, freshness of WHAT does it preserve? Please, be specific to point out which particular chemical additive do you like eating fresh! Is this the one or two of the following?

Food additives to avoid

  • Red 40 is an artificial color (azo dye, oxidant) added to Sierra Mist in the amount of 120 mg per bottle. Recent studies showed that mixtures of Red 40 with potassium or sodium benzoate preservatives may cause hyperactive behavior in children, that is, affect your child’s brain. Keep in mind that recommended daily intake of Vitamin A is only 1 mg. Please read PDF document
  • Potassium benzoate, is known to produce benzene, a known carcinogen in presence of acids, such as ascorbic acid (vitamin C), citric acid, etc.
  • Calcium disodium EDTA is a chemical agent that binds a variety of metal ions. According to the Wikipedia, EDTA has been found to be both cytotoxic and weakly genotoxic in laboratory animals. Oral exposures have been noted to cause reproductive and developmental effects
  • Sugar content is 60 teaspoons per bottle. Sugar is a macro-nutrient; we need it to function well but anything in excess is toxic! Please find time to watch eye-opening, science-backed YouTube video by M. D. Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist Sugar: The Bitter Truth
  • Blue 1 artificial food colorant is listed but NOT detected in Sierra Mist. The question is: Can you trust the label?
  • Another issue is that sodium content given on the top of the label is 35 mg per 8 FL OZ (240 ml). Despite the actual serving size is 12 FL OZ (355 ml), sodium content listed in the nutiriton chart is again 35 mg (2%) when it should be 52 mg. Can you trust the label?

Think twice before you choose to allow this cocktail of anti-nutritious xenobiotic chemicals into your blood and the blood of your lovely children. Ignorance is what kills. No wonder that drinking Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash will make you taking UNACCEPTABLY HIGH health risk of DDFI = 10.7 and will give you essentially zero Nutritional Value of DDNF = 0.06.

Bottom line. There are no lemon, lime or cranberry in Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash. You cannot trust anyone in the profit-driven economy. They will do ANYTHING in the name of profit. They will lie straight into your eyes for profit. Worst of all, they will kill you slowly in the name of quick profit. Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash tries convincing you that it is NATURAL drink by saying “natural” seven times on the label… Sadly, ignorant people will take this for real, and… they will hurt themselves and their loved ones. The FDA regulations allow for using words “natural flavor” with regard to replication of naturally occurring flavor ingredient which was prepared in a lab, for instance, by extraction of natural sources. I hope you choose belonging to the informed elite so that you can take care of yourself. Please choose healthier drinks like IZZE fortified, V8 Original, Perrier mineral water or simply Culligan filtered water for $1.11 per 3 gallons at Walmart.

    There is another Sierra Mist product called Strawberry Kiwi Splash. The ingredients are:
    carbonated water, sugar, citric acid, natural flavors, potassium citrate.
    DDFI = 0 (excellent), DDNF = 0.27 (unacceptable)

    • DyeDiet DyeDiet says:

      Thank you! This one is certainly a better choice…

      • benamore says:

        Those who choose to drink Strawberry Kiwi Splash instead of Cranberry Splash will have to deal with lower health risk (0) and still low nutritional value (0.27). Nutrition value of Strawberry Kiwi Splash is 4.4 times higher than Cranberry Splash.

    For parmesan herb popcorn, choose the better choice.
    Pop Weaver Parmesan With Italian Herbs And Garlic Popcorn: DDFI = 1 (because of TBHQ and artificial flavors), DDNF = 0.3 (low amount of green ingredients)
    Smartfood Selects Parmesan Herb Popcorn: DDFI = 0 (no harmful stuff), DDNF = 2.86 (good stuff inside)

    • DyeDiet DyeDiet says:

      Excellent! Thank you! But I have to ask you for a favor: PLEASE type-in PRODUCT names in full. This would HELP a lot: Who comes next will not need guessing which product
      was introduced. I have fixed the names based on your comments; it’s fine for now! Thanks again…

    I just calculated values for diet Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash and the values are:
    DDFI = 48 (unacceptable!)
    DDNF = 0.01 (almost nothing!)

    Does this apply to the plain Sierra Mist as well? My kids are allergic to corn (corn syrup) so are unable to have soda. We had been occasionally buying them Sierra Mist for special… but now I am wondering if it is just more junk food. We eat a natural, whole foods diet, so this was just a splurge that we allowed from time to time.
